Sean Kee - Dine In

Have been revisiting many old places recently and here comes one of my favourite braised duck rice stalls. The coffee shop is still as run down as it is, giving the old school rustic interior look. As usual, the crowd is there on a weekend and we can see that the 3 brothers were pretty occupied with their individual roles at the stall.

We ordered a set for 2 pax and it comes with a mixture of meat and innards with 2 bowls of soup as well as 2 bowls of rice. The soup was tasty and sweet with cabbage.

Though it was about 7 years apart from the last visit, their style of dishing out this braised plate of meat remains the same. The braised duck was lavishly topped with braised peanuts and bean sprouts, decked by slices of cut cucumbers.

A plate of braised Goodness

Every piece of duck meat is uniformly cut to this size and it tasted so good with its sticky savoury braised gravy.

Braised Duck Meat

Although the braised duck already tasted good by itself, I still could not help but immerse this meat into the chilli given. Beware you might get addicted to this sour and tangy chilli too.

Not forgetting the moist and evenly coated rice drenched with sticky sauce. The combination of the savoury taste and tender texture of braised duck makes our trip so fulfilling and definitely money well spent.


After so many years, I'm still loving it! Whenever we talked about food in Geylang, Sean Kee's Braised Duck will never be left out!

After a few tries again, we finally got our butts in the Coffeeshop where Sean Kee is located - Dine In. The previous visit to Sean Kee was a takeaway and within few weeks from the last visit, we managed to visit them on a Public Holiday. We did a comparison among our visits from take away to trying out them in the Food Festival. The experience was different but I would say their braised duck was remarkable.

For Dine-In, though the braised rice portion is considered half a portion lesser than take away. However, the sweet & salty gravy cradles each grain of rice well.

During this time of visit, besides the 3 big brothers who was manning the stall, their dad was there too.

As a soup lover, the best part of dining in the coffeehouse itself is to get a bowl of soup. Soup was tasty and with hints of herbs smell, however, it also gave us a sense that it was filled with lots of MSG based on the strong taste.


The mix platter was generously done with braised peanut, cucumber and beansprouts on top of the sweet braised duck meat, braised hard boil egg as well as braised Tau Gua. The tick and luscious gravy had spread all over it revealing a little sweetness that appeals to my taste buds.

Braised Duck

Cut on the braised duck was relatively even with meat being tender and tantalizing to the palate.

Look at its toppings
If you like your braised duck to go with some porridge, its also available at Sean Kee. The texture of the porridge was smooth and gooey, almost like a small bowl of Congee. Once again, their dark brown gravy do wonders on the plain bowl of porridge too and seriously, I dont mind having extra bowl of it apart from a bowl of rice.

Having experience both dine in and take away from Sean Kee, I would say that I would prefer having the dine in method as we get to have a good feel and taste of braised duck at its best condition. The portion of duck and rice marked a big differences between dine in and take away too. Thus, Dine In is definitely recommended.
